Choosing Your Wedding Venue

When is comes to choosing your wedding venue there’s so many varying factors to take into account. There’s the location, do they have accommodation, is it in your budget, do they have availability and much more…

Once you’ve narrowed down your search to really get the best our of your wedding photos have a think about these photography elements:

  • What’s the lighting like, mainly natural or artificial? This can affect the outcome of your photos depending on what style you like.
  • Do they have a pleasant outdoor space for photos?
  • Is there a pleasant indoor space for photos?
  • If (heavens forbid) it rains all day do they have a large enough space inside for a big group photo
  • Are there any access limitations to where you might like your photos to be taken

I really hope this helps with your venue choice. If you’d like to see a wedding I’ve shot at your chosen wedding venue then please ask. I’ll be happy to share what I can.

If, after all this, you’re still struggling to finalise your choice please feel free to get in touch. I’m often asked what’s my ‘professional’ opinion on different venues from a photographer’s point of view. I’m fair and non-bias, I solely work for myself and have no monetary connections with any venues.


Here’s a list of venues I’ve had the pleasure at shooting client’s weddings at before (if the venue name is in pink, click to see it in a featured blog post):
